Families with young kids know nothing fills a child’s dreams like a trip to Florida’s theme parks. Here’s what’s new at Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld Orlando, Universal Studios Florida, LEGOLAND Florida Resort and beyond.

 

Walt Disney World Resort

Mickey Mouse may be the star of the show, but Disney’s Hollywood Studios is opening his first ride-through attraction, March 4. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will feature a new cartoon short that takes guests inside a Mickey cartoon.

 

Meanwhile, Epcot will introduce several new shows in 2020. Guests can already experience Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360 and the Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along, and in summer, the France pavilion will welcome a new attraction, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, where guests will race through Gusteau’s restaurant on a wild adventure.

 

A new restaurant is also coming to the France pavilion: La Creperie de Paris, with table- and quick-service options, featuring a menu from Chef Jerome Bocuse.

 

Also at Epcot, the largest nighttime spectacular ever created for a Disney park, “HarmonioUS” will celebrate the music of Disney this year.

 

Finally, Disney Springs will debut “Drawn to Life,” a new Cirque du Soleil production, March 20. The new show will transport guests into the world of Disney animation in Cirque du Soleil’s signature style.

 

SeaWorld Orlando

Scheduled to open this spring, Ice Breaker is SeaWorld Orlando’s first launch coaster. The coaster will feature four launches, both backward and forward, culminating in a reverse launch.
